Information about Porteus Kiosk 4.6.0

Porteus is a fast, portable and modular live CD/USB medium based on Slackware Linux. The distribution started as a community remix of Slax, another Slackware-based live CD (which is no longer actively maintained), with KDE 3 as the default desktop for the i486 edition and a stripped-down KDE 4 as the desktop environment for the x86_64 flavour. The lightweight LXDE is available as an alternative desktop environment.

Tomasz Jokiel has announced the release of Porteus Kiosk 4.6.0, a new update of the projects specialist Gentoo-based Linux distribution designed for web-only kiosks. This version is predominantly a security update: "Im pleased to announce that Porteus Kiosk 4.6.0 is now available for download. Major software upgrades in this release include Linux kernel 4.14.13, Mozilla Firefox 52.5.3 ESR and Google Chrome 63.0.3239.132. Packages from the userland are upgraded to portage snapshot tagged on 20180114. This release fixes the Meltdown attack and partially mitigates the Spectre vulnerability through updated CPU microcode and on the application level. Firefox 52 ESR browser is less affected by Spectre while Chrome 63 needs experimental Site Isolation security feature enabled. More patches to be merged as Meltdown/Spectre bugs are still a work in progress. Please consider enabling automatic updates service for your kiosks to receive latest fixes and patches as soon as they become available.
